We all know it is about me Gentlemen
I have started it with flame 1.2, long before any manuals and older versions, with a lot of help appeared here.
Shortly after me, NoQ appeared, and after us, there was this heavy avalanche of mapmakers and maps. Just Simply look at the dates.
Under no circumstances I will resign from my prefix. Its history is very important to me. Mainly a forum member called Mattbrit, here NEXUS, take great effort to introduce me to FlaMe, although he was in U.S.A and I was in Poland. He taught me how to make a map, I did my first map, but I did not know how to compile it, so he did it for me, and to vary it from his maps, he made this Mero_ prefix. At that time only he and TEXanian called me Mero. It is me and community here who made it so popular.
The sad trututh seems to be, that NEXUS is said to be stubbed into heart by pool cue and died over a year ago in a bar fight. I have no resources to check it, but the truth is he disappeared from here, Steam, and gmail, over an year ago, which may be true. If anyone happen to know anything I will be obliged to be typed P.M.
We have talked for hours via Gmail chat, and it is due to him, I am making maps now, and I have took all the first lessons from at times there was no way to find out things, but by being told.
As a tribute, and sort of trademark, by which people know partly what to expect, I signature as signature. And I believe it was me the first person to use it. Or so widely, so I claim if it happen such things to be thought to be forbidden to keep it as it is. We all know many changes went so far, and many will be made.
It is me Mero, and always will be. All my maps have quite unusual names I think, and as my friends states earlier, have particular issues and serve particular purposes.
Mero, I hope I do not have to signature MeroWINGG obliged by a rule soon eh?
